Olympic Fever

July 27, 2012

H&M belt, ring and top, Aldo shoes, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, Gap skirt, necklace c/o Blackbird
Eek I’m so excited for this weekend! Olympics opening ceremony today, celebrating Matt’s birthday (a little early) tomorrow and hopefully lots of pool and beach time in between.
Are any of you gearing up for the Olympics? I for one am way too excited, I’m going to get all Canadiana geared up for today and everything!
Happy weekend everyone!

    You look fabulous here and I really LOVE this look. It's easy and more. Maybe it is the purple with the strips. This is a look some would see the pieces and think it did not work but as we see in your pictures doll they totally do!

    Beautiful photos as always! Love the color of your skirt!

    YES I'm so ready for the Olympics. I can't wait to watch the woman's gymnastics. I miss the days when I was able to flip around my house without killing myself lol

    For a girl who is excited about the Olympics, you're looking awfully Parisian chic – and we all knows the only exercise Parisians do is walking up millions of stairs 🙂 Even so, I'm with you. As a form gymnast I get pretty into the Olympics, not that Canada usually has much success in gymnastics… A girl can dream, right? Have a fabulous weekend, my lovely friend. Miss you!

    My husband and I will be rooting for the Canadians for you, we're headed to London on Wednesday!! Look for us at womens gymnastics, mens diving, track and field, and womens beach volleyball in our coordinating Canada jackets from the Bay! 🙂 Love this skirt on you!!

    Lovely skirt! what a beautiful color!

    I am so excited for the Olympics, especially the Opening Ceremony. Word is they are going to do a tribute to British literature, including Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland! I hope so!

    I love that skirt! Such a pretty color.

    Way excited for the Olympics over here! The summer ones are my favorite – equestrian trials and gymnastics are where it's at. And of course, swimming is nice for eye candy. 😉

    Haha I'm kinda the opposite of you in terms of Olympic fever – I wasn't even sure when they were on! Love this outfit – what a gorgeous colour maxi 🙂
